It’s a holiday week in the United States as we’re celebrating our Independence Day, but that doesn’t mean New Comic Book Day isn’t happening! In fact, it’s a huge week for comics, featuring two #50 milestone issues, including the long-awaited (and sadly spoiled by the New York Times) wedding between Batman and Catwoman. Another big release from DC is Man of Steel #6, where Brian Michael Bendis could take Superman to a whole new level.
On the Marvel side of things, Star Wars #50 is setting up an epic story to take place between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back, Ta-Nehisi Coates takes on Cap in the relaunched Captain America, and Matthew Rosenberg continues to kill it in Astonishing X-Men #13.
This is all not even counting some other killer issues this week, including the badass Cosmic Ghost Rider #1, and Death of Inhumans #1. It’s a big week for America, but it seems like it’s an even bigger week for comic books!
